Why am I not seeing my work pay off on the Scales?

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

For last 3 weeks I have ate clean and tracked my food.
I have been drinking 70 Oz of water everyday.
I am coming back from a concussion where I have had to lie down for the last 6 months. So when I started really eating cleanly the last 3 weeks and started exercising ehich I started with a 10 min Fat Blasting Video, added walking and started doing strengthing exercises, I really thought I would see a drop on the scale, and no drop in inches on my body.
I have not lost anything and it is so frustrating.

I am NOT giving up I am hoping that all this work will kick in soon and I will see a lower measurement either on scale or my cloths .

On the other hand it feels so good to be able to move again and concussion symptoms are getting better. I feel more energetic .
So my measurement of how I feel shows that all the work I am doing is making me feel good. Like we all say weight and inches are not the only measurements of success.

This is what I tracked the last 10 days in exercise !

    You've been doing everything right. Your body was just in stuck mode because of the concussion. You will see a dramatic drop soon. You're doing fantastic!

    I know it's hard to be patient, but 3 weeks really isn't that long. If you're tracking carefully and staying in calorie range eventually with the exercise you will see results. Hang in there.

  Wow, you are workin it! I understand sometimes lean muscle develops first so you don't always see a big reduction on the scale for a few weeks.

Keep it up you are an inspiration.

    Hang in there. I have heard this from others. They say the body is just adjusting. Don't give up! You will see results. Remember it is one day at a time. The work will not be over when you get to goal so think of it as a lifetime change.

Glad your concussion is better.
